I reinstalled (now under Ubuntu) a program to donate my spare CPU cycles to the World Community Grid. Right now it is chewing away on a 9 hour workload for the Human Proteome Folding project, after which it will start working on HelpConquer Cancer and FightAids. Assuming I am not in reality decrypting encrypted traffic for the CIA, I think it is a great plan to donate more or less wasted computer cycles to computer hungry research projects in the “Humanity” category. Yes I also donated to SETI long ago. Anyone to join in a “Ptarmigan” team? I will set one up if there are 4 participants.
